New Firefox 3.5 with private browsing and better privacy controls

Mozilla just released a new version of their popular web browser Firefox. Besides the bug fixes and general improvements, Firefox 3.5 incorporates two new security and privacy features for end users.

Private Browsing

Need to use someone else’s computer? Switch on Private Browsing mode and nothing will be recorded about your session, including cookies, history, and any other potentially private information.

Better privacy controls

The Privacy preference pane has been completely redesigned to offer users more control over their private information. Users can choose to retain or discard anything including history information, cookies, downloads, and form field information.

In addition, users can specify whether or not to include history and/or bookmarks in the location bar’s automated suggestions, so you can keep private web addresses from popping up unexpectedly while typing in the location bar.
